    Business Outlook


    HBW Attorneys and Patent Agents are great to work with. HBW's Executive Director is an extraordinary and knowledgeable leader. She is able to assist and often does help staff with filings or projects. The Executive Director is very respectful and supportive of her staff, professionally and personally. She reaches out to staff for their suggestions on how to improve the firm, our workflow with attorneys and patent agents to be a cohesive team At HBW there is potential for personal growth. The workload is strong and steady. We have bi-weekly meetings, to go over new procedures, training of new programs or patent practice, and review of patent rules. HBW offers flexible schedules, which in turn allow you to coordinate your work and personal schedules. HBW is generous to their employees. They give staff gift cards to coffee shops in town, as well as other perks. The staff at HBW are wonderful to work with and are always will to help one another out. HBW is located in historical downtown Half Moon Bay and is about 1 mile walk to the ocean beaches. HBW promotes phylantropic participation for community and other charitable organizations. I enjoyed working with everyone at Haynes Beffel & Wolfeld!


    In my case, the only con was living in the East Bay, so my commute was long, especially the afternoon commute.

    1. Patent Agent Interview

      Anonymous Employee in United States
      No Offer


      I had a few phone interviews with Haynes Beffel & Wolfeld - the standard preliminary screen. And then an interview with one of their patent agents and associates. The speaker phone was horrible and I could make out 60% of what they were saying (actually only 60% of what the secretary was saying most likely because she was positioned closest to the speaker, and yet the more important other two individuals I could make out about 20~30%) but made my best efforts to puzzle the pieces together based on the context of our conversation. My interview started 15~30 minutes late most likely because of their speaker issue; and when we first began our conversation I could that they weren't in very open-minded moods to begin with. I wasn't selected for a fly-in interview if they do offer it further down the process.
